If everything is running i.e. evaporator fan, condensor fan, and compressor then you have a sealed system problem. If the compressor is not running it may have a bad start device (relay and overload) or thermostat/control board (will have one or the other). I would try a new start device first if the compressor isn't running. If you put a new start device on the compressor and it doesn't start then the compressor is locked up and would be better to buy a new fridge. Hope this helps. p.s. make sure there is no frost build up on back panel in freezer.
